  • Bladder prolapse

    Bladder prolapse or cystocele is a condition where the bladder drops or sags into the vagina. It is caused by a weakening of the wall between the vagina and the bladder which can result in urine leakage and incomplete emptying of urine. In some cases, the dropped bladder stretches the urethra and causes leakage of urine during coughing, sneezing, laughing or any actions that put pressure on the bladder. The bladder prolapse is the result of muscle straining that occurs during vaginal birth, weight lifting, or chronic constipation.
